    • The OEB also includes a contingent of Valkyrie fighters, managed by a marine squad
  • The main lounge on the OEB is located 8FWD and features a library motif (dubbed the “Writers Room” or “8-Foreword” it doubles as a museum with artifacts from the life of OEB). Several OEB quotes adorn 8 FWD:

"There is no end to what a living world will demand of you"

“In order to rise from its own ashes, a Phoenix first must burn.”

“All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change.”

“Drowning people sometimes die fighting their rescuers.”

  • A jogging track runs the perimeter of Deck 9; 1 lap=1 km.
  • No pools (hot/cold tubs in gym); no cetacean ops (bioneural circuitry nav)
  • A two-storied astrometrics lab adjoining Stellar Cartography.
  • Phasers emit an ionic trace, which can be used to track targets previously hit, even through a cloak.
